Ghosts capture
Rupture
Sever my thoughts
Clouding
Forceful doubting
Becoming what I'm not
They enter and exit
Whispering a mass
Of empty promises
Ghosts capture
Rupture
Sever my thoughts
Clouding
Surrounding
The present
Forgot
As the past comes
I run
The night breaks
Here comes the dawn
Ghosts darken me
With blades of hate

Lies
Inside the mind
Weary of nothing
But what was
Left behind
Truth
Unknown
Out my heart's window

My ghosts have captured
Ruptured
Severed my thoughts
Here I am
I am something
I'm not


The author's comments:
I wrote this about my life, about my past catching up with me and gradually destroying my present-self. I hope none of your ghosts intercept you, because it's a living hell.

Wow! This is excellent, but a bit frightening! Keep on writing! And, if you get the chance, may you PLEASE comment on my work too? I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks so much

I definitely like this. The words, the flow, the sound... it's awesome.

I'm sorry about what it means though. :/
